Last month, TFC’s Ahmad Adedimeji had a chat with Director Biyi Bandele after the success of his co-directed Netflix Original series, Blood Sisters.
In that interview, Biyi Bandele ran us through getting his role as the director of Blood Sisters, how he started his journey as a director, and his prospects for the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood.
A little down memory lane, he said; “I started writing screenplays for other people and at some point, I felt I was ready to direct. ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ (adapted from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun) was my first feature. It took about seven years for that to happen. And then when it came out, people tried to destroy it for a number of reasons and bury it. It kind of almost broke me. It was brutal. But I continued working. If I hadn’t done that, I definitely would not have been asked to direct Blood Sisters.”
